My wireless network card needs a new driver?
I have actually experienced this before and surprisingly, it turned out to be a hardware fault with my built-in wireless device. I had to resort eventually to one of those USB plug-in wifi dongles. They cost less than ten bucks, and if you don't need the range, come in "nano" sizes that protrude less than half an inch when installed. Do disable the internal wifi device, either in device manager or better still, in the bios if using this solution.
How do you reconnect the touchpad
If you have a wired mouse around, you can plug that in, and use it to navigate to the control panel. In Mouse settings, you can re-enable touchpad.
Alternatively, some of the Travelmates have a keyboard shortcut to enable touchpad, Function-F7.
I hope one of these solutions helps!
I will need to use a wi-fi internet service briefly, shortly. I understand the wi-fi button on this laptop... Do I require additional software or would it connect automatically ?
Say your staying overnight at a motel/hotel and they provide WIFI service with the room. After powering on your laptop look down in the lower right hand corner of your screen on the taskbar menu and if you move your mouse pointer over each icon you should see a icon for your laptops wireless system and then click on this icon and then a short menu will come up and then choose "view wireless networks" next and this will make your wireless card search for available wireless networks to connect to. Look closely at this list of wireless networks and then select the network you want to connect to. The next thing that should happen is a second menu bar will appear asking you for a password to connect to the network you are tying to connect to. If the network is "unprotected" other words, "open" you will not need a password and in a few seconds your wireless menu will show "connected" and the signal strength your wireless card is receiving from the "wireless access point" your trying to connect to. Good luck, Dennis

Try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink recently? Do you get to any screen? BIOS setup? Boot Menu? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord?

You are looking at having to replace the motherboard here, as the charging circuit appears to not be working. I assume the computer works as long as it's plugged in, so the DC-in jack must be OK
